"It is our unconscious habits of body, speech, and mind to which we are habituated that give rise—over the long term and in the aggregate—to the habitats we inhabit. And, this...was as pertinent and obvious to fifth-century Buddhists as it is, or ought to be, to twenty-first century perspectives."   —William Waldron, "A Buddhist Theory of Unconscious Mind"
